When a smile decorates our face

It’s contagious when it’s pure;

Revealing a kindness and a warmth

That encourages one to endure.

When a hug envelops a lonely soul

It’s tender and shows much care,

As a gentle reminder and a reassurance

That someone is always there.

When a friendly kiss is sincere

It seals our soul with joy;

With a compassion and a happiness

When a friendship we enjoy.

It’s the little acts of kindness

That will never go unnoticed,

As we will always remember those special moments

That we keep in our memory list.

To really make a difference

We merely need to care,

And put the needs of others first

Or simply just to be there.

As we live a peaceful and quiet life

And mind our own business too,

It’s a testimony of a simple life

Where we reflect on all we do.

Most crave to be surrounded

By caring and calming souls;

Where God’s wisdom is reflected

So fruitful solutions can unfold.

It’s to share the wonderful gospel

And its message so simple and pure;

It’s to remind those precious souls

That from sin there is a cure.

It’s to be God’s hands and feet

In a world hostile and lost;

As His vessels sharing the good news in love

To point them to the cross.

It’s the simple acts that speak aloud

And the most precious of all indeed,

Reserved in the hearts of man

As we plant those loving seeds.
